Kids take over at the Museum

 

It'll be a case of young things looking after old things at the Manx Museum in Douglas today (Fri 21 Nov).

Manx National Heritage has been working with Year 5 and 6 pupils at St Thomas' Church of England Primary School to prepare for Kids Take Over Day.

The pupils have been learning about the operation of the Manx Museum and today will be running the entire facility from managing the reception desk and shop to working with curators and inspecting the environmental conditions of the museum stores.

There's even a mini-Director for the day, who will be looking after VIP guests.

Kids Take Over Day is an annual event across Britain co-coordinated by independent charity Kids in Museums which aims to help place children at the heart of museums.

Today's take over will run from 1 to 3pm.
